that weak to ignore four assaults in benghazi in the last several weeks? does the obama administration see no evil but hear no evil? these assaults with rocket propelled grerngrenades and explosive devices foreshadowed the deadly violence that occurred on the anniversary of 9/11. oh, yes. i have seen this movie before. the obama administration apparently didn't. with them, flattery will get you everywhere. i guess they never read about the trojan horse. and this is a fox news alert. the state department is ordering that all family members and nonessential u.s. government personnel leave sudan and tunisia. get right to greg who is there. >> good evening, greg. >> hey, judge, the state department warning a u.s. citizens not to travel here to tunisia. if you are here use extreme caution . we spoke to one official and that person was cautious all of this in response of the violence that was seen here in the u.s. embassy yesterday and thousands of protestors outside of the embassy and some scaled over the wall and looted and smashing windows. no embassy staffers were hurt. four protestors kille
of tripoli, it was at a consulate in benghazi. violent protests are spreading across the middle east. it seems like every day we hear about a new city and new country and a new embassy that is under siege. each of these countries representing a major national security concern for the united states. sudan gets over $2.5 billion american aid in american aid and that is just over the last four years. tanisha was the birthplace of the arab spring movement. the u.s. is providing it with regular assistance. yemen has received $620 million from america over the last four years. our own reporter, greg, has more in london. reporter: it is supposed to be a holy day of prayer. we have been watching the feeds coming in from all over the word and it is anything but that. violence wracking capital after capital. particularly in the united states. just to give you a little bit more context, as you noted, tanisha is the birthplace of the arab spring. the government ought to be more moderate. something we could depend on. in fact, we have seen extremist elements that work there. at the u.s. embassy t
violence and more attacks against u.s. diplomats, alluding to the attacks in benghazi that killed four people. there is higher level of security around the u.s. embassy as local media reported there was credible threat against the embassy. hundred yards to my left is one of roads leading down to the embassy compound. that has 18-foot tall concrete blocks blocking the road so no trucks or cars or for that matter person can get anyway near the embassy. >> gregg: our viewers remember the coverage of the original arab spring. you were right there in the middle of it. now, so many months later, juxtaposed the scenes and explain the change in attitude you have witnessed? >> it has been a change. 18 months, people were chanting freedom. they told you were american and how much they loved the american ideal. now, they are chanting death to america. it's a different crowd and much less educated and much harder line islamic. when incited by this movie a lot of people live on less than $2 a day. these aren't people going on youtube watching a video and coming down to protest. these are people who
smith, glenn doherty and tyrone woods. the four men were killed when the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya came under attack tuesday. >> today we bring home four americans who gave their lives for our country and our values. >> reporter: the obama administration is pushing back against a british newspaper report that the state department had credible information about the benghazi attack 48 hours before it happened. >> the story is absolutely wrong. we were not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the u.s. mission in benghazi was planned or imminent. >> reporter: violent demonstrations against the anti- islam film spread across the muslim world friday. protesters breached the grounds of the u.s. embassies in tunisia and the sudan with angry mobs ripping down the american flag and replacing it with the black flag of muslim extremists. reports out of that region are saying a handful of demonstrators have died in those violent protests in tunisia and the sudan. at the state department danielle nottingham, derek, back to you. >> thank you. we ought to note
of the ambassador in benghazi and three other americans there. it appears to be clearly an assassination. >> the arab spring was never about democracy. we have a lot of bbc journalists reporting and talking to a few english-speaking, well groomed professional egyptians and then reading their facebook. they extrapolated from that very small example to say 100 billion egyptians wanted democracy. 100 billion egyptians wanted to get out from under hosey hosni mubarak and also wanted to assert their religious identity. the arab spring was an entire construction of mrs. clinton's mind and never really existed in the sense it was described. lou: secretary clinton saying that the ambassador has a loss to the arab spring. what is your reaction to those words and we have shared with the audience tonight? >> i think that clinton may know more about the middle east and jay carney, but not much. mrs. clinton has blood on her hands everywhere. they stuck the ambassador and his team into the middle of a city without guards and the city provided more suicide bombers in iraq than any country except for s
the segment, showing about mitt rim's comments on the attacks in benghazi and cairo were terrible. i think it's a wash. >> but it's moved beyond mitt romney's statements none attack. it's gone in part to the administration's hard-to-believe story that all this violence was sparked by the movie and the movie alone and now i think the issues are what really happened in benghazi. we still don't know exactly what happened. was it preplanned? and then the spread to the other countries. >> the longer this goes on, the more it becomes about the president's responsibility and the less it becomes about mitt romney's initial reaction to it. >> but his foreign policy has not been a predominant issue in a lot of these races and with the economy as sluggish as it is, you wouldn't think this would trump everything. >> world events have a way of disrupting elections at times and no one saw this becoming as a predominant issue in the campaign. >> obama had a lot of strong points on foreign policy, he had a pretty nice list of thing and pretty close with afghanistan but the arab spring was always that was som
were killed in benghazi if the political calculation was that this is a chance for us to go where republicans traditionally have gone? >> well, i would suspect so being both foreign policy and national security and president obama has at different times had advantages more so in national security, and, you know, so i e would suspect that the romney campaign would want any opportunity to both draw distinctions and gain the upper hand and that said the strategy from the outset has been to focus on the economy and that is where the numbers have been the strongest and no surprise that in the midst of all of this yesterday for example when the news of the fed's quantitative easing program came out, you saw mitt romney addressing that and being skeptical of it. so i would suspect that they would continue to shift back to the economy and although the people care about the events abroad even though the lives are at stake, the economy and the pocketbook issues trump that. >> standby, because i want to bring in susan glasser who is editor-in-chief of foreign policy. i want you to listen to

, militant terrorists and they are the ones who attacked the cult in benghazi and they have been doing their deed for the last 10, 15 years since afghanistan, iraq and now around the world. so you got that movement going. you got mainstream islamic groups like muslim brotherhood groups in egypt and other places who are competing for a new place in the political arena that's evolving in these countries that's democraticizing and old pent up grievances against the united states and other western countries. you have three or four things coming together where they are evolving political conditions and people are competing to get public opinions, so these things come together and that's how we should best understand this. >> is this a subset of the arab world or a broad base thing? >> what's interesting you have these demonstrations all over the islamic world, indonesia, nigeria, bangladesh. the movie triggers anger and rage for muslims across the islamic world. in the arab world you have a set of political grievances against the u.s. and europe and other places and these are coming into pl
